The digital identity of the east is a whole new creature. The images that represent Orientalism are changing, and what is the next step for Orientalism? Technology changes the way of seeing and the way of depicting ourselves. Through the exaggerated facial filter, how do we identify ourselves? How do you identify me?  


This chair is a transformation of a "Chinese chair" designed by a Danish designer with my interpretation. I interpreted the Danish designer's interpretation of the "Chinese chair." The chair is covered with screens on the front side as the facade and aims to show the absurdness of representation between digital and reality. Even though the physical chair skeleton stays the same, the identity of this chair is liquidity.
